. today's celebrated barack obama breakout star was none other that charles schumer who hosted the fest activities. he was able to enhance the rit yiment with shah bat service announcements. >> the theme of this year's inaugural is faith in america's future. >> jon: speaking of faith, i believe we should at this time thank cantor lonestein's lovely wife, hannah, for the delicious treats awaiting us downstairs. [ laughter ] following the ser -- [ laughter ] but of course inauguration day isn't all ceremony. at its center is the president's speech where he articulates the vision of governance in the next four years. the early reviews. >> marvelous speech brave and bold. >> historic speech. >> audacious speech. >> a huge proposal for america. >> jon: it's a call to action like j.f.k.'s ask not what your country to k- do for you or fdr, the only thing we have to fear is fear itself or jimmy carter's somewhat inexplicable "she's a brickhouse she's mighty mighty." [ laughter ] true it was an inaugural speech before you it was -- [ laughter ] let's listen to barack obama. >> fidel at this to o
associated with it. that's right. they're not done yet. here is what new york senator chuck schumer said over the weekend, and i quote, it is going to be a great opportunity for us because in our budget that we will pass we will have tax reform, which many of my republican colleagues like, but it is going to include revenues. a great opportunity to get more revenues. rehire texas. now, republicans say they are not taking this line down. they have been fond of reminding americans it has been for years, four years since the senate has written a budget. today they upped the ante with these calculations. democrats last above the way back in 2009, three pentagon's cabin built, not that we have the money to do it, just the time. a mountain climbing team could have made it to the top of everest and back 292 *. finally, we could have built all 179 miles of the keystone pipeline in that time the senate has been sitting on its budget riding pants. you get the picture. we have been waiting. they have been dawdling. bottom-line, and still could end up being the canary in the coal mine. one guest just the
wants more. now, chuck schumer is saying, i'll play this in the next segment that he wants tax reform, but tax reform means another increase of revenue, in other words, another increase in taxes. is this negotiatable? will house republicans hold the line? and how do you stop this president? i mean, can you shut down the government? are you willing to shut down the government if the president won't deal with entitlement reform where all the spending is? >> look, you have to deal with entitlement reform if you want to save medicare, that's where the president has been so wrong. we've passed one of the toughest budgets anybody has looked at saving medicare and we grow the economy 13 million people are out of work, we put them back. this is a very conservative congress, and we've stand on ours, and this fight will put us on stronger ground and more importantly shall the american people are going to be with you from the statement if you can't pass the budget you shouldn't be paid and how could you move forward giving anybody a debt limit increase if they can't tell how to spend it. >> sean
and so forth. i'm sure senator schumer can be to that. there's room within the tax cut for us to reduce the deficit and still protect the middle class and promote growth. [inaudible] >> we believe strongly that this is the way. senator schumer said clearly the civic tree for the president. there's no one of the brinksmanship and that's way more than one occasion to my remarks it's how we feel. [inaudible] >> anything we do will be based on a budget. we do think separate and apart from now, but the framework for moving forward is the budget senator murray has indicated she will move forward with. >> can you be more specific -- [inaudible] >> senator durbin correctly said it's always been republican mantra. close the loopholes and use this mayonnaise. rethink some of those should be used for revenues. so did simpson/bowles. as the discussions have been about. we haven't changed our position and i hope they have a change to various. that will be up to the budget committee and the finance committee will discuss that. i [inaudible] >> say that again. senator murray, we talked about that on t
holding the hearings on his nomination. he met with chairman max baucus and senator chuck schumer of new york. chuck schumer is calling him a shoe in as treasury secretary but today jack lew is making rounds with republican senators including top republican orrin hatch. one question republicans may bring up in his confirmation is his time as a top executive at citigroup from 2006-2009. while he was there the bank got slammed in the financial crisis back in 2008 when it got a $45 billion taxpayer bailout and jack lew made millions while he was at city including about a $1 million bonus for his work at the bank in 2008. tweet republican senators raised questions about his city jobs in previous confirmation hearing that the republican national committee hopes to make it an issue this time around and each it is three page press release two weeks ago when his nomination was announced by the president that aggregated articles about jack lew's work for citigroup, calling this from sub prime to prime-time. cheryl: peter barnes, thank you very much. it is going to be interesting. not going to be
of senator charles schumer, as an extremist fringe group. and look how he demonizes the republicans in congress. when barack obama says we can't mistake absolutism for principle, what he is saying is that precision and clarity and exactness and sameness in law should be the same as nebulous undefined principles. i got news for the president. absolutists do exists, words do have meaning in language and law. it is the basis of all civilization. it is why all the laws are written down, so the letter of the law carries the force of the law. that is why our bill of rights was written into law, to ensure that fundamental freedoms of a minority could never be denied by a majority. those are the principles we call unalienable rights. without these absolutes, protections, democracy decays into nothing more than two wolves and one lamb, voting on who to eat for lunch. i under our president to use caution when attacking clearly defined absolutes, in favor of his principles. mr. president, just because you wish words meant something other than what they mean. >> okay, that is enough of wayne la
yesterday's luncheon at the capitol. everyone was eating and listening to a speech by senator chuck schumer when this happened. >> i think we really deserve a round of applause to our chef -- >> did you see that dismissive head shake there? catch that eye roll there. looks like she didn't like the conversation much going on or coming at her from boehner. >>> up next, republicans have figured out they can't win presidential elections fair and square, so now they want to change the rules. they want to cheat a little. you're watching "hardball," the place for politics. [ male announcer ] you are a business pro. omnipotent of opportunity. you know how to mix business... with business. and you...rent from national. because only national lets you choose any car in the aisle. and go. you can even take a full-size or above. and still pay the mid-size price. i could get used to this. [ male announcer ] yes, you could business pro. yes, you could. go national. go like a pro. to help protect your eye health as you age... would you take it? well, there is. [ male announcer ] it's called ocuvite. a vita
" and "roll call." chuck schumer just said the republicans brinked. did they blink, susan, and does it matter if they did? >> i think a big recalbraigz on their part. they find themselves on the defensive when it comes to the debt ceiling issue. remember how they vowed they would only raise the debt ceiling by a dollar for every dollar cut in spending. now they said never mind. we'll push that down the road. the big fight will be on the sweeping spending cuts that go into effect march 1 and on the government funding that runs out on march 27. march is going to be the month to watch, and it's a month that could end in a government shutdown. >> ifill: is it the kind of fight the republicans want to have to redefine themselveses? >> i think they do. gwen, i think you have to know when to hold them and know when to fold them. yes, the republicans folded on this wise wisely. finally, i think they got some smart on this. you have to pick your fights. they need a breather now. they've been on the defense for a year on tax cuts for millionaires, on toughness, shutting down the government, they're not
. the house seems to have made something move. you hear chuck schumer on the sunday show saying oh, yeah, we're going to do a budget. all of a should the glacial activity in the senate is sliding, it's moving. >> what the house republicans managed to do is sort of shame the senate democrats into action, and it was funny watching chuck schumer talk about it. he almost talked like, oh, they were manning on doing this anyway, which to me suggests that at least finally they were somewhat embarrassed about the fact that as you say they have not passed a pwupbl net fou budget in four years. i can't think of anything that is more basic or fundamental that the whole congress must do every single year if you want fiscal sanity. jon: they are legally required to do so under the constitution. >> that's just a technicality, come on, jon. jon: in you don't have a budget if you spend way beyond it nobody notices it because there is no benchmark, right? >> it's absolute insanity. no household would operate like that. if a company were to do this it would go out of business immediately. such is the situatio
cutting spending and i think that-- >> i certainly heard the tax thing from senator schumer. he left no doubts. we want more revenue. this is an opportunity to bring in more revenue. >> yes. stuart: so taxes are going to go up, spending is really not going to be cut. i just don't see that. and the president is totally, he totally ignored the debt. i've got to tell you, kirsten, that is not a recipe for firm, strong economic growth. >> well, he did ignore the debt. i would say that i don't think inaugural speeches are usually a time to sort of ruminate about the problems in the country. george bush didn't talk about how he didn't find wmd's in his second inaugural address nor would anybody expect him to. and there there is concern with t the democrats and on the right. and how that is in the short-term, you asked what kind of growth are we going to have? i don't know that does effect us in the short-term. the economy could turn around and it could turn around at that rate. that would be wonderful. i think 5% is probably more than what most people are expecting. stuart: i don't think -
for them. for chuck schumer to say they were going to pass a budget anyway tells you the strategy might be working. however your question is very valid. because i have a same concerns. you know, they have caved every single time in the last two years. and i have made it very explicit to them that i'm with them on the issue because i believe there's -- i believe there's statements they're not going to cave again. but that day cave again they're going to have some problems in the house. it they going to have -- because there's a large number of members of the house of representatives and house members dissatisfied with what is hooping. and they're believing that the leadership is changing what they, you know, the strategy changing their negotiation tactic. i'm optimistic. like i said before, i think they have to prove themselves. leadership comes not from the demanding leadership it comes from having the people you're leading trust you. that's the only way you can follow is if you have trust in your leadership. i don't have that trust 100%. what i also -- i believe enough that they want t
. the presiding officer: without objection. mr. sessions: i was pleased to hear a few days ago senator schumer said that we'd have a budget in the senate. it's been now 1,370 about, give or take a few days, since we've had a budget in the senate, even though plain statutory law requires the senate to have a budget. and now senator murray has followed up yesterday with a quote saying that the senate will -- today, i believe, said we'll again return to regular order and move a budget resolution through the committee and to the senate floor. so the budget committee has not been meeting, has not been doing its duty. as the ranking republican on the budget committee, i've been aghast, really, at the process and have talked about it now for over a thousand days. and so this will be a good step. my colleagues would like to suggest somehow that, well, they decided to do this out of the goodness of their heart and this is the right thing, and on their own they've just decided. but i think the american people have had a bellyful of this. the united states house has repeatedly passed budgets. the senate
without pay. i'm not sure this is a threat the american people would mind so much. senator chuck schumer has said the senate is working on a budget but the republicans won't like it because it includes tax increases. they will talk about a short term solution. it is a change from before. beyond that, it remains to be seen what common ground, if any we can find between the two sides. house speaker boehner wants to balance the budge net ten years but doing that would take massive spending cuts that democrats won't go for. we're back after the break. coming on to me all the time now. (vo) she gets the comedians laughing and the thinkers thinking. >>ok, so there's wiggle room in the ten commandments, that's what you're saying. you would rather deal with ahmadinejad than me. >>absolutely. >> and so would mitt romney. (vo) she's joy behar. >>and the best part is that current will let me say anything. what the hell were they thinking? >> announcer: ladies and gentlemen, it's "the stephanie miller show." ♪ i'm walkin' on sunshine ♪ ♪ i'm walkin' on sunshine ♪ ♪ and it's time to fe
shout out from chuck schumer. >> wow. >> reporter: we did reach out to beyonce's publicist. we haven't gotten any special statement from the joint congressional committee. senator lamar alexander said beyonce sounded good to him. jim acosta, cnn, washington. >>> well, a stunning upset at the australian open. serena williams goes down to a teenager and fellow american. we'll have details of the big we'll have details of the big win by sloan stevens. let's go. ♪ ♪ ♪ [ male announcer ] introducing the all-new cadillac xts... another big night on the town, eh? ...and the return of life lived large. ♪ [ female announcer ] new roc® retinol correxion max. the power of roc® retinol is intensified with a serum. it's proven to be 4x better at smoothing lines and deep wrinkles than professional treatments. roc® max for maximum results. so i used my citi thankyou card to pick up some accessories. a new belt. some nylons. and what girl wouldn't need new shoes? and with all the points i've been earning, i was able to get us a flight to our favorite climbing spot even on a holiday weeken
. senator schumer is leading a group that senator flake is part of. i think we can get this done. >> jeff, can the president drag the unions along to get them supporting real immigration reform? >> remember, in the last four years, we haven't had a comprehensive plan put forward because the unions don't want guest worker plan or temporary -- >> why not? they just don't want more workers in the workplace? >> i believe on the high-tech side, there's some in my party that say let's not have any new. >> thank god we didn't have that in world war ii where einstein ended up in austria. >> my own view is if they're willing to come here or stay here after they've received a ph.d. from our universities, roll out the red carpet and don't try to count that against other visas that have been offered. >> think about the best and the brightest in this country. think about the high-tech companies in this country that have revolutionized the way we live, the way we work, whether you're talking about yahoo! or google or intel, go tech company after tech company after tech company. >> there are companies i
. chuck schumer this weekend says, trust us, we're going to pass a budget. they haven't passed a budget in the last four years. so this bill today moving out of the house will force the senate to act, which is something they have not done in the past four years. >> right. finally, congressman, for the most conservative republicans who say even a three-month extension to may 19th is wrong, are you trying to back them off of that ledge and say we need to speak with a unified voice and at least get this done even if it is a short term? >> yeah. look, i think the reason why jim jordan, the former chairman of the roc, the current chairman of the roc, the republican study committee that's the most conservative members of the republican chamber, they have all endorsed this because they realize that if you really want to fix the debt, if you really want to cut spending, you have got to do big things. it can't just be little cuts here and there. so they agree with the strategy here, which is really to move beyond the debt limit discussion right now that we're having and get to the budget discuss
